Recent research carried out in the Czech Republic indicates that what employers are looking for nowadays are workers who are willing to learn new things, can interpret work instructions and are prepared to take responsibility. However, employers say that today's school-leavers perform poorly on most of these measures and are not as competent as their counterparts of a decade ago.

Not only women who care for children opt to work from home, but also students, disabled people or individuals with a particular lifestyle. The characteristics of teleworking and the reasons given for working from home should be examined separately for men and women. That is because women generally choose to work from home for different reasons and in a different phase of their life cycle and professional career than men. These are the findings of the data analysis of the Generations and gender survey  (GGS 2005), comprising answers from 5,757 respondents doing paid work in a reference week. The sample group included 5,029 employed and self-employed individuals. Respondents were asked where their workplace was and could choose among the following answers: ‘I usually work in one place away from home’; ‘I usually work at home’; ‘I usually work part of the week at home and part away from home’; ‘I usually work in a variety of places away from home’.  http://www.unece.org/pau/ggp/
